The community has been very helpful in sending us information. If people within the community see police cars on the side of the road over the next day or two, don’t be alarmed, we are just conducting our search as fast as possible so we can bring some closure to the family.”
Sanchuk said that the Hill family is currently not reaching out to speak with media at this time.
“The OPP is here on the territory assisting our Six Nations partners in the search,” he said. “We will be sending updates and releases out as we get them. We’re hoping to have located Mr. Hill by the end of today.”
